Questions will reflect the emphasis of examples done in class, and quiz and homework questions. Topics The exam will cover the following sections of the text: Functions: 0.10.6. The derivative: 1.11.4, 1.61.8. Applications of the derivative: 2.12.7. Review questions for exam #1 (1) Let p ( x ) = x 5- 2 x + 1 and let q ( x ) = ( x 3 + 2) 2 . Compute (a) q (- 1) (b) q ( a + b ) (c) p ( q (- 1)) (d) q ( p ( x )) (2) Find the equation of the straight line through the points (5 , 4) and (7 , 0). (3) Find the points of intersection of the curves y = x 3 +2 x and y = 3 x 2 . (4) Using the definition of the derivative as a limit, compute f ( x ) if f ( x ) = x 2- 3 x + 2. (5) Find the equation of the tangent line to y = x 2- 3 x +2 at the point where x =- 1. (6) Find the derivatives of the following functions. You do not have to simplify your answers....
